This year, Saudi Arabia witnessed the participation of 42 visually impaired pilgrims who successfully completed their Hajj pilgrimage.

Thanks to the support provided by the National Association of the Blind (Kafeef) in Riyadh, a total of 42 visually impaired individuals, including both men and women, were able to successfully perform the Hajj pilgrimage this year. Accompanied by their aides, these individuals actively participated in all the essential rituals of Hajj, such as the stoning of the Jamarat and the Tawaf Al Widaa (Farewell Circumambulation).

The Manasik program by the National Association of the Blind aims to enhance the accessibility and comfort of visually impaired individuals during the sacred journey by offering comprehensive services.

Abdul Aziz Al Mubarak, the Director of Administrative and Financial Affairs at Kafeef, expressed his appreciation for the efforts of Saudi Arabia’s leadership and authorities in organizing a successful Hajj this year. He highlighted the significance of facilitating the participation of visually impaired individuals in such profound spiritual experiences.

To ensure personalized assistance, the 42 beneficiaries and their companions were divided into three groups throughout the pilgrimage. The Hajj pilgrimage took place this year from June 26 to July 7.
